Jodha Akbar 17 May 2021: Jodha Akbar Monday 17th May 2021 sharif remembers how he slapped and taunted jalal’s wife and thinks what he did he made her cry whom jalal can’t see crying in happiness also. He goes back picks bakshi from ground and says i was in anger thats why i am really i was not in senses i really don’t deserve you bakshi stops him and says don’t say like this you are my husband he says doesn’t deserve your ring but bakshi makes him wear it and says its ok. He says apply rose water on your cheeks so that nobody can see fingerprints of slap on her face she says its matter between husband and wife don’t worry i’ll apply it and nobody will know what happened and says soon jalal will praise you and leaves. Sharif cunningly says i want throne not praise i married a widow so that can reach to throne you are just a mere way to throne.
bakshi comes to jodha and greets her. Jodha is happy seeing and ask any work she says is work required to meet you? Jodha says no. Bakshi shows her some jewelry which bakshi brought its design is of same of amer’s jewelry that bakshi espesially bought for her. Jodha is elated seeing it and her eyes sees the fingerprints on bakshi’s face and ask are you alright? Bakshi hides it through dupatta and says its nothing. She diverts the topic and says you are happy here? Jodha is silent bakshi says jalal is twisted things will take time. Jodha says you are right every wound heals with time . Time can heal anything. Jodha now gets up from her place sets her dupatta and gives some jewelry from her side.
jalal and ruks are in room asking riddle jalal gives right answer but ruks doesn’t guess so rahim comes and answers. Jalal says i promised him to spend time with him. Ruks made him sit on bed and ask what game you want to play. He says that i use to play with my father salima comes to take him away but jalal says its alright. Jalal ask what game khan baba used to play with you he says he use become a horse and i ride on his back. Jalal says the one who is running whole india you want to make him horse.

Salima thanks him jalal says he just want to give him sweet memories of childhood. And it is nothing in front of what khan baba did for him.

Jodha says but rahim is with you salima says he is my step son. He was son of other wife of bairam. He is lucky that got teacher like jalal he became horse today for him. Jodha is stunned and remembers his punishment for that family. Salima informs that jalal didn’t give them punishment. He has the heart which can be seen when he is around rahim, today i saw ruks in tears jodha says ruksss?? Salima informs that ruks was just eight years old when they got married. They become used to each other. Ruks started to show rights on him and jalal use to accept her everything but ruks couldn’t give him happiness of life A child they are a happy couple but still a void of their own child. Jodha in contemplative mood and is intently listening(as if she is going to fulfill his wish lol).
hamida bano is with religious personality(baba), jodha comes and greets her and ask you called me she says yes sit. Now jalal comes in and ask hamida you called me hamida says i wanted the newly wedded couple to take blessing of baba. Both sit side by side baba gives them blessing and says their couple will be remembered in the history of mughals and soon mughals will get its heir jalal looks at jodha. She looks down. Hamida says i am happy with this news and will go on feet to ajmer sharif and will return on feet. Jalal interrupts and says you are taking it bit serious jodha agrees hamida says once said is said and has to be done. Jalal Jodha gets up and jalal comes down and about to leave but turns around and gives his hand to jodha, she has no option as everybody including hamida is looking and gives her hand to him to get down, Jalal smiles while jodha is embarrassed (BG plays).they share an eyelock and Jalal leaves.
Jalal is finished praying when Jodha comes and tells him to come up with a situation where Hameeda can be dissuaded from going to Ajmer. Both have a slight nok jhok and argue then Jalal tells her to put up a facade as he had put in front of her parents- to make believe that Jodha is carrying his child, and asks her to make promise by putting her hand on his head. Jodha is hell shocked at what she listened.
